  • Auf'S Dutch I completed and uploaded for EoS. I'll try to finish up Who 8 My Wings today or tomorrow. I apologize on the delay, RL work stuff hit me this week

  • Wardia Pretoriana has already been completed. I’ll try to finish Auf’S Dutch and Who 8 My Wings later this week as I’ve already started them.

  • Official statement for Electoral Cavalry Lance price is that it's staying at 1ppm for now!! Cavalry picks have been the dominant choice for EoS knights in the recent past, we'll see if this lance price changes things. I would imagine if lances become overwhelmingly used, then they'll probably go back up a point or two in the future. However, if they maintain balanced use compared with picks maybe 1ppm is the correct price. It'll also be interesting to see usage on non-knightly orders units and w…

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “Checking in again: do we expect to see a hot fix to the Empire book for these lances? UB being what it is we can just give our KOs Cavalry Picks for the foreseeable future, but it’d be great to know! ” ACS have asked again, we should have a final verdict soon.

  • Quote from dan: “So I thought this thread was about who wins in a head to head-to-head grind fest. Do we have an answer on that somewhat more entertaining question? ” I haven’t run a full simulation yet, but just looking at stats in a head-to-head close combat fight EoS tank should out-grind all configurations of the Infernal Engine except for rock crusher (that beats steam tank much faster). In either case, the two models are going to be fighting each other for a long time...

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “@Nerocrossius Any thoughts on why GW over lance for the KC Cowboy? Obviously it provides better consistency, but you do lose out on hit bonus from LR when doing the combo charge you’re describing. And you can’t use a shield. And such a lightly equipped character doesn’t seem like he wants to get charged regardless. @Alexwellace I think that Nero tried that at one point, But ultimately ended up pivoting to a Marshal because of the superior quantity of attacks and the FIE…

  • Quote from Mattyp: “Hi Marshals, Right, an apprentice with the heirloom. Does he/she get two spells - both no.1 spells but from two different paths or is it a wasted item as the second spell is essentially an unusable slot for the send no.1 spell? ie, can I get lash and fireball on an apprentice with the heirloom? Thanks in advance ” Others have already answered your question. I will second comments that just getting an adept is generally better than an apprentice + Heirloom imo. Either way, it'…

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “@Nerocrossius I appreciate this insight, but my concern about this is still vulnerability to opposing damage. Def 3 Res 4 Arm 3 isn’t a stellar stat line when you’re striking at Initiative 0. Battle focus and Hatred, plus the possibility of stacking with tons of other buffs, are almost certainly a powerful combination. However, we’re now discussing something like 400-600 points of characters on top of our ~350 point unit, adding in the wagon and other spells drags us up…

  • Flagellants are excellent damage for their value. They play an excellent flank guard role. Their biggest issues are mobility and hitting things. As long as you're careful with your marching and not getting them in awkward places around impassable terrain and chaff they are quite effective (especially if you pair them with some shooting chaff buddies to help support them). If you want flagellants to go toe-to-toe with elite units they need hatred from battle altar or a prelate in their unit. It's…

  • Prayers to Sunna for the mightiest Scorching Salvo that has ever been cast!

  • There was a slight release schedule change and the Gold version of slim books have been published today instead of next week (I believe there was some BRB errata they wanted to finish for next week). However, I know that ACS are going to be asked about this... Electoral Cavalry Lances are still priced at 1ppm in the Gold Slimbook even though there were multiple reports on it. ACS are going to triple check that this really is an error and get back to you all as soon as we can.

  • Quote from piteglio: “Quote from Nerocrossius: “At least we did one wound to chariots... such a slaughter... ” Quote from piteglio: “Imperial Guard on Chariots (3 Attacks, 3+, 4+, 5+): 2 hits, 1 wound, 1 saved ” ” Oh, well I read that wrong Hopefully IG rally... Maybe Sunna will have a commercial break with whatever has been distracting her... oh wait, I think it’s established that she’s watching Netflix... well this doesn’t bode well.

  • At least we did one wound to chariots... such a slaughter...

  • Quote from grungimusic: “Exactly so, magic is even more underpriced now than it used to be - except ours, of course. I have always felt a strong bias existing against DH amongst many of the red tags, and I fear the only thing we'll see with our "gold" book is the further destruction of both our competitiveness and identity. ” HR tries its best to ensure that all staff members (red tag or not) are fair to all communities and follow staff rules. I have not encountered any staff internally with bia…

  • Quote from GhostWarrior: “Sorry if this is a bit of threadmancy, but it's been ~ a month since this has been reported, and the book hasn't received this update. Any eta here? Kind regards. ” I believe Slim books go Gold for layout corrections on March 25th.

  • If we’re only looking at the ability to hold a flank, flagellants and some State Militia do an excellent job holding a flank. In fact you can already see a few tournament lists do this— they deploy flagellants on the flanks with some light troops chaff (militia, rangers or reiters) and then they deploy tank in the middle so they can send the tank anywhere needed. The lists without steam tank do this too as they tend to put flagellants on the flanks. Some of the double volley gun lists deploy sim…

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “@Nerocrossius Have you actually tried out those IG blocks yet? I’m definitely tempted to give them a spin. ” I've tried the sword and board IG with naked Marshal. 23 of them with full command and a simple marshal is ~500pts. and it's a solid unit, especially with supporting halberdiers and random magic support. I need to try it with GW IG now that their cost has gone down, they're about ~570pts which is a little too expensive for the concept I think. Awhile back I tried…

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “@DanT Don’t worry, @Nerocrossius has already thoroughly poisoned my brain with his threads about naked Great weapon characters in IG blocks and other such nonsense. I’m not worried about there being a lack of potential creative combinations in EOS. Rather, it was the contrast between the possible options and the realized ones in the tournament lists. The whole “wait, isn’t this just an 8th list with -1 steam tank?” ” haha, I’m the first to admit that I have crazy ideas …
